CONSCIOUS CONSUMPTION


Pretty cool, right? I read about Leafymade in Vegomagasinet earlier this year and got these plates from a friend. Conventional disposables are linked to issues such as deforestation, pollution, littering and complicated recycling processes. The products from Leafymade are made of leaves of the Shorea Robusta trees in India and are 100%...

As you already know, I love both Bruns frisörer (frisörer=hairdressers) and their products. This brand is located in Skåne, in the south of Sweden, and focuses on "green hair care". They have two salons; one in Malmö and one in Lund. I used to live right next to the one in Malmö, so naturally I went there when I wanted my hair cut....

During my train trip down to Amsterdam this summer I stopped in Hamburg, since you often have to change trains there when travelling by train in Europe. I decided to stay a night so I would be able to spend some time in the city and visit some places that I had been keen to see. For example, I wanted...

I had the pleasure to meet and interview Wendy Heijne a few weeks ago, about the Stockholm based concept store Studio Heijne. As you probably already are aware of, the fashion industry is known for being unsustainable; both in regard to producing clothes with unsustainable materials, not caring about labour rights adequately and engaging in mass...

I went to Copenhagen yesterday. I do not really remember the last time I was in Copenhagen to be honest and there were several places I wanted to visit. Copenhagen is such a lovely city, with lots of sustainable alternatives; people bicycling everywhere and both vegan and organic options at restaurants. I just love this city!

I recently visited Ruth & Raoul here in Uppsala with a friend of mine. I had no idea that such a lovely vintage and secondhand store existed here, so it truly was a pleasant surprise for me. Ruth & Raoul is located downtown, at Sysslomansgatan. However, they also have a store in Stockholm at Horngatan.

I have been waiting a couple of weeks to finish this review, since I have made several orders from Sellpy recently and wanted to write a review based on all of these orders instead of just one. My general experience with Sellpy is positive, even though there are several things I want to highlight in regards to what could be done better....

In 2008, Filippa K opened their second hand store in Stockholm. They sell both preloved items, but also some of their clothes from earlier collections which have not been sold. It is thus possible for people that want to sell their clothes from Filippa K to use this service offered by the brand Filippa K itself. When the item is...

Jag besökte i höstas Myrornas butik i Boländerna i Uppsala. Redan tidigare hade jag besökt Myrornas butik i city, men blev ganska besviken över deras klädutbud. Myrorna i Boländerna var dock en helt annan historia. För det första är butiken otroligt välsorterad och fräsch. Jag tror att det är extra viktigt för just second hand-marknaden att ha rent...

Det har blivit många nya upplevelser för mig under min höst och vinter här i Uppsala. Nu senast har jag besökt en klädbytarträff för första gången, ett förslag som Amanda, som jag lärt känna under hösten, kom med. Vi valde att besöka en träff här i Uppsala, som anordnats av en zero waste-förening.
